No Excuse on workers’ Salary - Buhari Tells Governors

  • There are Nigerians who haven’t been paid for six months, says President
  • Governors got yesterday a subtle rebuke from the President.
  • He urged them to ensure payment of salaries to workers and pension to retirees.
The Federal Government has released N760.17 billion in two tranches of the Paris Club loan refund to states for outstanding salaries and pensions but some governors are believed to have spent the cash on other things.
President Muhammadu Buhari told traditional rulers at a meeting in Abuja that he was “living with the problems of this country day-by-day, and mostly those of the ordinary people”.
“There are Nigerians that haven’t been paid for six months; there are Nigerians that have not been paid their retirement benefits for years.
“I’m appealing to the governors (that was why we voted money; we borrowed money), please make sure anybody under you, pay them because most of them depend on that salary to pay rent, school fees,’’ he said.
